The thing is, I can't make sense of which is the right and which the left.
I must assume the 'RS' in question is the RS of the half I'm trying to get started, as opposed to the other half, standing by for later work on the other needle.
So: I have all 68 on the beginning end?
That's where it all goes wrong for me. If I'm already at the beginning end, how do I "knit the first three sts so that there are 3 more sts at the end of the RS row"????
And if go the other way and have the 68 sts on the end of the row, that doesn't make sense, either.
I'm going bonkers.
